The sad part is that one run of a cargo ship carrying flat screen tv's, cell phones and gaming devices from China or the ROK to the US probably spews out more emissions than have all carbureted motorcycles operated in America over the last 50 years.
"South Korea's STX shipyard says it has designed a ship to carry 22,000 shipping containers that would be 450 meters long and there are already 3,693 new ship builds on the books for ocean going vessels over 150 meters in length due over the next three years. The amount of air pollution just these new ships will put out when launched is equal to having another 29 billion cars on the roads."
No need for alarm.
One political party platform vows to ELIMINATE all "fossil fuels" (however . . . in the United States only).
